Open Source Brain Case Study

Wellcome Trust University College London

Open Source Brain is a project of University College London - funded by the Wellcome Trust - to build a resource for sharing and collaboratively developing computational models of neural systems. Open Source Brain lets users explore and simulate computational models of neuronal networks and individual neurons.

This case study gives an overview of the key features of Open Source Brain and outlines MetaCell's role in building the current version of the tool.

"It was great to work with MetaCell on expanding the Open Source Brain platform. They had an in-depth knowledge of the technologies involved, the scientific background and the project requirements. Their continuing contributions have made sure the platform is well designed, robust and provides an impressive user experience."

Dr. Padraig Gleeson, Silver Lab, University College of London

"We chose to work with MetaCell on the development of Open Source Brain because of their expertise in computational neuroscience and their skills in utilizing the latest web technologies to deliver reliable, high performance solutions. Having completed several fixed term contracts, where the requirements were scoped out and work was agreed in advance, I am pleased to confirm that they have consistently delivered elegant and robust software solutions that have exceeding our expectations."

Prof. Angus Silver FRS, Principal Investigator, University College of London
